    HI! [​IMG] I'm new to keeping chickens as a hobby. I bought three pet chickens about a month ago from an auction. They were sold as possibly being 'three young hens', but I'm pretty sure that at least one of them is a roo. So, if anyone wouldn't mind going to my webpage http://fynbos.netfirms.com/chickens.htm I've got lots of pictures available, and I'd love to hear opinions on their breeds and genders. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Pepper & Spicey are roo's.
    Salty looks like a hen.

    Hey, Lee, do you see those pointy feathers in Salty's hackle area? Other than that, it looks like a hen, but there are definitely some points on those saddles. The other two are roosters, I believe.

    Thought so. Now, I know I'm right since Jody chimed in! I do see those pointy saddles on all three. Someone either didn't know their chickens or just pulled your leg about them being pullets.
    At least they're pretty roosters!

    Sorry but I have to say all three are roosters. I see pointy sattle feathers on all three of them... Auctions are full of liars it seems! I bet they knew they weren't girls.

    So they're all little boys? Oh, that's alright, as long as they're all happy, healthy, and tame, I'm pleased. Thank you so much to the people who gave helpful advice.

    I'm still not sure what breed they are though, so I'd really appreciate any opinions.[​IMG]

    Thanks, CW
